Greetings, Fellow Bloggers!
I was very humbled and honored recently to receive “The Sunshine Blogger Award”!
I have two blogger partners to thank for this, as surprisingly, both nominated me within days of each other!
Ryan Callahan’s Blog – Thank you, Ryan! If you’ve read Ryan’s blog, then you already know two things: 1) He is very energized– and energizing! Not to mention highly motivating. And, 2) He loves Jesus!! I would definitely recommend checking him out when you get the chance!
Love and Grace – Thank you, Ward! Love and Grace is a huge inspiration to me. Ward has a very gentle way of speaking the truth in love, and in season; and is also very adept at taking a difficult passage and simplifying it; making it more understandable. If you haven’t visited Ward’s site yet, I would highly encourage you to do so!
So many questions! Here goes…
Q: Who is your best friend and what do you have in common?
A: My best friend is Susan. The expression of our faith is the biggest thing we have in common. And writing. And cats. We both have and love cats. But honestly, I think our differences are what make us best friends. In that sense, I think we balance each other out and we both need that from time to time.
Q: What is your favorite animal and why?
A: I absolutely adore Sea Otters! Not only are they super cute, they also have the sweetest affection toward each other! Oh, and I love they way they pick up rocks to break open the shells they gather on their chest. If I could have one as a pet, I would do it immediately!
Q: Words of wisdom for someone?
A: In these dark days, remember: “As close as we stand TO Him, is as firm as we will stand IN Him”. ~me
Q: What is the book that you would recommend that everyone read?
In His Steps. It challenges the depth of our faith and level of commitment to God. Just how far will we really go to live out what we say we believe?
Q: What is your favorite thing to do on a daily basis?
A: Coffee. That first sip in the morning is my favorite thing!
Q: Where is your favorite place to go and why?
A: To the mountains! The majesty of the mountains helps me in some small way to experience the majesty of God.
Q: What is one word that describes you best? Explain.
A: Introvert. I am a raging introvert. I love my time alone time. Especially my times alone with God.
Q: If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be and why?
A: I’m a procrastinator. I’d love to change that about myself. Hmm… maybe I’ll start on that tomorrow.
Q: What do you consider to be the priority of your life?
A: My relationship with God. I can’t say I don’t let it fall by the wayside at times, but when I do I can’t wait to get back on track.
Q: Tell us your favorite author and why.
A: C.S. Lewis, no contest. I love the way his mind works in his writings. They’re meaty and deep. And without his skill in articulation, I might never understand some of the concepts he presents.
Q: What is one thing that you wish everyone knew about you?
A: I don’t like to talk on the phone. So, please don’t call me. Ever. (LOL) Seriously, though… don’t call.
